Alex is a stupid nigger


back

Alex is a stupid nigger is the name of an internet meme which was created by Daniel keem AKA DJ keemstar who is most known for being the host of the popular youtube news and gossip channel DramaAlert.

There is quite a bit of back-story to why keemstar said the line “alex is a stupid nigger” so I will give a summarised version of the story here. If you want the full in depth version of the story here is a video made by keemstar in which he explains the whole story in his own words.

The story takes place sometime during 2009-2010 (according to keemstar) when keem was streaming on a website called battlecam.com whereby the main gimmick of the site was that various streamers would compete which each other in terms of popularly in order to stay streaming on the site while unpopular streamers would be replaced and removed from the stream.

Keemstar was made a moderator by the sites owner due to his popularity and along with other moderators (including a guy called alex) he had the power to cut in front of the queue of streamers who were waiting to stream on the site.

One night while simultaneously streaming on both battlecam.com and blogtv.com keemstar noticed that some other moderator (who he believed was alex) kept pushing him to the front of the stream queue in order to cut in front of everyone else. He also saw alex along with other people type racist comments including wop and dago in his livestream chat.

Finally after receiving an onslaught of racial slurs and believing that alex tried to frame keemstar by looking like a moderator who was abusing his powers, keem finally responded to alex by calling him a “stupid nigger” and thus this meme was born.

Origin

The original live stream video in which keemstar says alex is a stupid nigger was make by keemstar and originated from blogtv.com. The stream was made sometime during 2009-2010 according to keemstar. Since it was created the original footage has been re-uploaded to YouTube.

The earliest video which I can find that remixes the original video is a video titled HOT N*GGA – KEEMSTAR EDITION (Keemstar Cringe Compilation) which was made by YouTube user chosen on 5th January 2016.

Even-though the video by chosen is the earliest example which I can find of someone using this meme, I believe that the YouTube channel Flater really helped to popularize it and bring it to a mainstream audience.

The first video which flater made that incorporates this meme is called keemstar the tank engine which he posted on 21st June 2016. Currently the video has over 198 thousand views.

Flater then made another video on 24th June 2016 titled keemstar saying “nigger” remix compilation. In my opinion this video along with a part 2 and 3 three which he also made (the links to all three videos are in the videos section below) as well as numerous other popular videos on his channel which are based on this meme support my theory that Flater has significantly helped to spread this meme.

The main hash-tag which is associated with this meme is #keemstar and the main search term is alex is a stupid nigger.

Uses

Based on what I have seen the main way in which the original video is used is by remixing the line alex is a stupid nigger with other videos so that it results in a funny remix.

Review

Along with the majority of people on the internet I detest keemstar, he has done so many bad things to other people and has been exposed multiple times for his actions. (watch this video by gradeAunderA to see what I mean) Even though I don’t like keem, I do like that fact this these remix videos make fun of a genuinely terrible individual and for that I would recommend them to all those who feel the same way about keemstar as I do.
